Broadcom MegaRAID SAS-9380-8i8e
Deliver high-performance and increased throughput to external JBOD storage enclosures with internal and external connectivity
Unlock Storage Performance with Broadcom 12 Gb/s SAS Solutions
The explosive growth of data in cloud and enterprise data centers is driving the need for a higher performance storage interface to speed the ability of critical applications to access data. Broadcom 12 Gb/s SAS solutions are designed to deliver the performance and data protection capabilities required for the most demanding next-generation server and storage platforms. Offering up to double the data transfer rate of 6 Gb/s SAS solutions, 12 Gb/s SAS allows the SAS infrastructure to deliver bandwidth that can fully utilize that of PCI Express 3.0 with a single controller card.
Next-Generation High Port Count SAS RAID
The MegaRAID® SAS 9380-8i8e, with eight internal and eight external ports in a low-profile form factor, delivers two 1.2 GHz PowerPC processor cores and a 72-bit DDR3 interface that drives 2 GB cache memory. Powered by the SAS3316 dual-core ROC, with 16 native SAS/SATA ports, the 9380- 8i8e controller can take full advantage of the latest PCI Express 3.0 interface to provide higher performance and increased throughput. The 12 Gb/s MegaRAID SAS 9380-8i8e is designed to direct connect eight drives inside the box or eight drives outside the box. By leveraging SAS expander technology, users can expand to up to 240 drives increasing inside the box drive count or through supporting external JBOD storage enclosures.
Enterprise Data Protection
The MegaRAID SAS 9380-8i8e RAID controller supports data retention by using NAND flash memory down on the controller, backed up by a CacheVault Power Module 02 (CVPM02). The CVPM02 module is a supercapacitor pack that provides power for the backup of your data in case of host power loss or server failure. The CVPM02 module is connected to the controller remotely by cable. The data is backed up to the NAND flash memory on the MegaRAID controller board.
Standard support for the most popular RAID levels, including RAID 5 and RAID 6, further strengthens the data protection capabilities of the MegaRAID SAS 9380-8i8e. A new enterprise feature employed by the 12 Gb/s MegaRAID SAS controllers is advanced drive diagnostic technology. In the event of a physical drive failure, the drive is placed in shield state and the MegaRAID controller starts drive diagnostics to determine if the drive is indeed failed or can be restored. This saves customers time, money and lost compute time associated with transient drive failures and unnecessary drive returns.
